Kinabatangan river cruise

Kinabatangan river cruise

One of the most popular destinations in Sabah is the Kinabatangan River. This river has a length of 560 kilometers and stretches through half of Eastern Sabah. Alongside the riverbanks there is an abundance of wildlife. During a river cruise you will have a chance to spot the rare orangutan, the pygmy elephant, proboscis monkeys and saltwater crocodiles. During night cruises you might spot the leopard cat, numerous sleeping birds, wild boars, snakes and many crocodiles.

Sepilok Orangutan sanctuary

Sepilok Orangutan sanctuary

Sepilok rehabilitation centre is one of the biggest and most well known orangutan sanctuaries in Malaysia. The sanctuary is located nearby Sandakan; the total site is over 43 square kilometer in size. Around 75 orangutans roam free within the forest reserve. During their rehabilitation the animals rely heavy on the help of the people that work at the centre; and also on the donations from tourists. Tourist can snap precious pictures during daily feeding time.

A 4095 meter tall mountain

Mount Kinabalu is the tallest mountain in Malaysia and the 20th tallest in the World. Mainly because of the biological diversity the mountain is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climbing the mountain is not an easy feat for the untrained; though it will absolutely be one of the best experiences ever. Watching the sun rise in the early morning will definitely make you forget all the hardships you had to endure during the hike up.

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park

TAR Marine Park is the perfect place to enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling and light jungle treks. The marine park is made up of five small islands: Gaya, Manukan, Sapi, Sulug and Mamutik. The best beaches and probably also the best corals can be found around Gaya island; the biggest of the five islands. The marine park is only a 20 minute boat trip away from the city of Kota Kinabalu.

Mulu National Park

Mulu National Park

Mulu National Park is the biggest national park in Sarawak. The park is best known for the amazing caves. The Sarawak Chamber is the world's biggest cave chamber. It is said that 40 Boeing 747 aircraft's fit in the cave. Clearwater cave is the world's longest cave with a length of over 110 kilometers. The caves aren't the only highlights at Mulu NP. The amazing pinnacles at Mount Api are absolutely stunning to witness. A visit to Mulu NP will bring your holiday in Malaysia to new heights!

Langkawi Eagle and Lagenda Park

Nearby Jetty Point – Langkawi Harbour – you can visit the Langkawi Eagle Square. On this square an enormous hand-made eagle rises in the sky. This eagle symbolizes the island of Langkawi. The name of the island originates from a combination of the words Helang (which means eagle in Malay) and Kawi (red/brown, the color of the statue). On one of the many benches around statue you can enjoy one of the best sunsets on the island.

Langkawi Eagle Square

Next to the Eagle Square lies the 50 hectares large Lagenda Langkawi Park. Lagenda Langkawi is a splendid park with many types of trees, plants and flowers. The park contains four ponds and a considerable number of information columns with information about the island and its history. According to a number of Internet sites the entrance fee is 5RM, but when we were there, we did not have to pay a fee to enter the park. If you visit the park during dry season then the park might look that healthy compared to visiting the park during the wet season.

Langkawi Lagenda Park

I would personally suggest combining a visit to the eagle and the park with a visit to Kuah. If you like to shop a bit, you can even fill one entire day. Right next to park you can find Langkawi Jetty Point, with a couple of shops (including Starbucks). At the end of the day you can enjoy a great meal at the seafood hawkers in front of the park.
